I ordered 6/6 and do not even have a VIN # yet :(

I think ordering in Black is my problem, but the dealer has no clue.

Ordered May 20. Built Jun 23. Got VIN Jul 5.

Googled my VIN and found est of delivery date, Jul 10.

That's a Sunday. Does anybody know if trucks drop off cars when dealer is closed on Sunday?

if it was the tuxedo black, then yes. that color has been removed and replaced. you might need to have your order changed to the new color. your sales rep should have notified you about this a few weeks ago.

Will do.

I never received the "dealer installed accessory". Never signed the paper. I honestly think it may have been a mistake? I dunno.

I'm sure I'll get it cleared up. Everyone at the dealer is really nice... it appears genuine.

I ordered a 4 door SE Sterling Gray with the 201A convenience package on 5/26.

Just got a call from my dealer, still no build date.

It sounds like people's wait times can vary quite a bit, though I haven't spent a ton of time reading everyone's experiences. Can anyone give me some idea of how common a month and a half wait before even a build date is scheduled is?

See my signature for the gruesome details of my order. I've lost count of the happy new owners I've congratulated on here who ordered after I did.

Your car is probably built, I ordered mine 5/20, built 6/23. Maybe your sales guy is not with it?
